what is the composition of a triple bond?

for example on the practice final that was posted here, question 17 has a CN that are bonded by triple bonds. I know that a pi bond is caused by two p orbits overlapping. since there are two pi bonds, i do not know how to write the composition.

You first write your composition for the sigma bond part of it like normal and then 2x pi(C2p, N2p) underneath, that's how they did it in one of the review sessions
